    It’s 9 am and I’ve just tumbled off the bus into today’s venue, a.k.a., “The Naming Rights Arena,” another stop on the five-month, 59-city Rock This Country tour by Shania Twain that I’m working with VER Tour Sound. The first hour is spent helping the rest of the audio crew as we tip the first of two trailers (mostly PA). About an hour later, the second trailer is empty as well, and I’m able get to focus on my “real”… View this story

    Over the past several years, entertainment production wireless system users in the U.S. have seen the energizing of digital television (DTV) and the 700 MHz band re-allocation, all the while preparing for the mass introduction of white space devices – which is now just around the corner along with the 2016 commencement of the 600 MHz incentive auction. What does this all mean? It’s the reshaping of all entertainment production wireless operations in the U.S. The result of the auction… View this story

    I’ve spoken with dozens of live sound techs and engineers over the years who have expressed (often longingly) their wish for a way to reliably distribute full-bandwidth audio signal wirelessly to loudspeakers in remote locations, such as delay towers that extend coverage at larger events. The decades-long practice of running cable for this application has been, and remains, somewhat expensive as well as a hassle, i.e., preventing cable damage or accidental unplugging with thousands of people tromping around. Attempts to… View this story
